I love Elle

I let Elle fall asleep on my chest tonight. I did it for me, not for her. I have not done that in a long time. Usually it's right into the crib at bedtime, but tonight I felt the need to hold her close. I sometimes take for granted how lucky I am to have Elle. There are people in this world who can't have babies and will never experience the joy that I feel every day being with Elle. There are parents in this world who lose their beloved children, and I could never imagine the horror of that. I hope and pray it is something I never have to experience.
I love you Elle. Thank you for making me a better person. And thanks for sleeping on me, it was great to spend that time watching you, listening to your sweet baby noises and cuddling. You are an excellent baby, I will always love you.

Here is a picture from when Elle was about 3 weeks old.
